We said we'd give old Ralph Bakshi another spin of the wheel after our last encounter but we're finding maybe fantasy may not be his forte. In spite of an impressive assemblage of talent including Frank Frazetta, an artist who defined the look of these kind of stories, Fire and Ice never really adds up to the sum of its parts. It really serves as more of a template left unfilled, which is all the more maddening when one wonders what could have been produced had that creative energy been fully utilised.

It's a triple threat of toon trivia as Niall gets in the ring with Anthony Askew and Bradley Meek to decide who was paying the most attention in the last year via a series of perplexing quiz games. Marvel at our incredible powers of recall! (or lack thereof)

And Christmas may be over, but there's one gift left unwrapped at the back of the cupboard - a seasonal installment of Let's Go with a selection box of festive anime episodes that celebrate the true spirit of the holidays.
